When entering expenses to deduct for Self-Employment income, do I have to enter each purchase, or can I enter the total amount spent in each category, as on Schedule C?

Normally on Schedule C, one just enters the total spent in categories such as Advertising, Office Expenses, etc. On TurboTax, it appears to be asking for more detailed itemization. What is the correct way of entering these expenses?

As long as you have records of all purchases in categories, you can total them for the year.
